Dr. Crane is an expert in otology and neurotology who also has a research background in disorders of the vestibular system. He is a 2000 graduate of the M.D.-Ph.D. program at University of California, Los Angeles where he got a Ph.D. studying vestibular control of eye movement in humans. He continued at UCLA for his internship and residency in otolaryngology. After completing his residency, Dr. Crane remained at UCLA as a faculty member where he continued resident teaching as well as did research supported by a fellowship from the Giannini Family Foundation. Dr. Crane completed a 2 year neurotology fellowship at Johns Hopkins in June of 2009. During his time there he was awarded the American Neurotology Society Fellows Award.

Dr. Crane, an assistant professor in the departments of Otolaryngology and Neurobiology and Anatomy, is an expert in otology and neurotology, who also has a research background in disorders of the vestibular system. His research aims to better understand human motion perception and spatial orientation using psychophysical and engineering techniques to study head motion and its interaction with visual stimuli. Current studies involve healthy individuals, patients with vestibular hypofunction, and patients with dizziness symptoms related to common central integration disorders such as migraine associated vertigo.
A graduate of the M.D.-Ph.D. program at the University of California, Los Angeles, Crane remained at UCLA as a faculty member, where he continued resident teaching and conducted research supported by a fellowship from the Giannini Family Foundation. He most recently was a clinical instructor at Johns Hopkins Hospital when he completed a residency program in neurotology. Dr. Crane's practice involves all aspects of otology and neurotology including treatment of hearing, balance disorders and surgery of the ear and lateral skull.
